We learned that play is a very important aspect in a child’s development. We also learned how you use the game by interacting with it. How the child also develops while playing the game and others like it. Introduction A toy/game that is interactive helps the child develop in many different parts of his body and mind.

Early Childhood Education Abstract Early childhood education (ECE) is a type of educational program which relates to the teaching of young children in their preschool years. It consists of many activities and experiences designed to assist in the cognitive and social development of preschoolers before they start elementary school. In most early childhood programs and schools, technology will be part of the learning background of the future. To make sure this new technology is used effectively, we must assure that teachers are fully trained and supported. In this paper, theoretical perspectives of child development is discussed with the basic elements of learning program.
(Galiguzova, 1995) stated that children’s play is filled with repetitions and imaginations based on what the children have seen, heard and experienced. Play is a way for children to explore their surrounding world with creativity and fantasy. However, Anderson, Huston. Schmitt, Linegarger and Wrigest (2001) described that “Young children’s creativity maybe displayed most obviously in imaginative play, where children generate roles, characters and objects”. Children need the hands on approach to their world with enough sense of human touch.
I would plan activities with a range of different materials and resources. I will involve parents in the child’s learning by inviting them to attend variety of events throughout the school year. By implementing a three way teacher-environment-parent philosophy of learning, bearing in mind that all children are different and each of them has their own capabilities, strengths and weaknesses, I would encourage the child in participatory learning and setting their own environment. By setting up different corners, like reading, drawing, painting or art. In this way the learning becomes individualized, which greatly benefits children.

It helps to deal with different situations -such as dominance, conflict, and sharing. It encourages role playing and developed the understanding of rules and their importance. It introduces the team situation and gives children to experience sharing of ideas. While it is healthy and necessary for children to play independently, play presents a unique and formative opportunity for children to engage in social interactions and build relationships with other children and adults. It provides opportunities for children to make friends, to negotiate with others, and to develop their communication skills.
Montessori was born on august the 31st of 1970 in the town of chiraville Italy. Montessori tells us that her father was a financial manager and her mother was raised in a family that prized education Montessori was an avid reader and she was well schooled which is unusual for Italian women at this time and because of this she immersed herself in many fields of study before creating the education method that bears her name. In her early childhood years she grew up with a paradise of libraries, books and fine schools. Maria Montessori theory is an educational approach developed by Italian physician and educator which is characterized and emphasized of independence, freedom, within limits, and respect for a child’s natural psychological, physical and social development. Maria Montessori has five principles and they accurately represent how the educators of Montessori work in many different ways.
Montessori who lived from 1870-1952, educational institutions are still adopting it’s methods of teaching and learning. In fact, the Montessori Method has become a worldwide highly individualized educational approach for children of all ages. (CGMS, 2017). The fundamental purpose of implementing the Montessori Method in an educational setting is to offer the child an opportunity to develop the skills and habits he will need for a lifetime of learning and happiness. With this goal in mind, a relationship has to be formed between the teacher and the student and equally important is the environment in which the learning will take place.
Ms. Rodrigues arrange the classroom setting too create a learning environment depending on the children interest following the creative curriculum. The teachers always accommodate the learning areas, for the students to make free choice, but the teachers also guide their young learners during play. On April 23, 2015 the observation took about one hour, upon my arrival children were finishing their breakfast, and choosing learning areas to play. In this classroom the teachers practice free choice, which provide students the opportunity to choose their learning area of interest. This is crucial in early child development setting because it provides students confidence about themselves, and encourage them to think to make decisions.
They trust that their children will be safe with me and trust that I will teach them and give them the education that they deserve. English essayist Chesterton wrote, “Education is simply the soul of a society as it passes from one generation to another” ( Guillaume, 2016, p.29). As teachers we are the building blocks for our students education. In my Art class I try to expose my students to many things and try to show them that with a good education and hard work they can accomplish and do anything that they put their mind too. Even as a teacher, I learn from my students everyday.
